Do you know that socialism paves the way to communism? In Lenin’s own words, “For Communism to succeed, you need socialism.” These days are disguised as ‘progressive socialism,’ ‘democratic socialism,’ or ‘it hasn’t been tried yet socialism.’ The dangers of socialism are obvious to those who read history and pay attention, to the rest it’s just a free ride.
Socialism paves the way – Do you trust the government?
My question to all my liberal friends is, do you trust the government? Do you trust politicians to uphold their part of the deal? I am certain that no matter where you stand in the political arena we all agree that most of DC Swamp can’t be trusted as far as we can throw it.
We all speak the same language when describing a overgrown, corrupt, tax you death government, whether Republican or Democrat. We also agree on fighting the growing police state. No one wants a police state controlled by a few people.
So when we talk about this topic ask yourself these simple questions. Do you want to give our government more power? What about globalism? Has anyone even read 1984? Trust me, it’s not a fiction book. I believe we can all agree that unbalanced power corrupts an individual. How do you give more power to people who shouldn’t have power in the first place?
Socialism paves the way – Government control of everything
By supporting socialism, socialism is when government controls what you produce and sell, takes 80%of your earnings and distributes it as it sees fit, creates health boards, chooses who lives or dies. It controls your education – remember, just because it’s free doesn’t mean you get to choose what you study.
Socialism paves the way to lies, loss of truth
Do you remember when Bernie Sanders went around using Venezuela as the newest socialist utopia example? Today, Venezuela, with all the free healthcare and free education, people are actually dying in the streets, the infrastructure is failing, children eat out of garbage trucks, people dying in hospitals, doctors are placed in prison for speaking against the regime, criminal gangs backed by the regime lead by Cuban communists control the streets, and children bathe in sewer water.
The problem in the USA is that you won’t see this on CNN, or the other lame stream media. Ignorance is bliss. People would rather believe in fairy tales than do actual research from people with true experience in the subject matter.
Which brings me to millionaire Bernie Sanders, how many times do people in America who have never actually experienced socialism name countries like Sweden, Denmark etc. as examples of socialism?
Socialism paves the way to false narratives
I remember in 2015 when The Danes apparently grew weary of Sen. Bernie Sanders insulting their country. Denmark is not a socialist nation, says its prime minister. It has a “market economy.”
Sanders, the Democratic presidential candidate who calls himself a socialist, has used Denmark as the example of the socialist utopia he wants to create in America. During the Democrats’ first debate in 2015, he said “we should look to countries like Denmark, like Sweden and Norway, and learn from what they have accomplished for their working people.”
While appearing in New Hampshire in September, Sanders said that he had “talked to a guy from Denmark” who told him that in Denmark,”‘it is very hard to become very, very rich, but it’s pretty hard to be very, very poor.’ And that makes a lot of sense to me.”
So because something makes sense to him, he has the right to force that system on people who don’t want it? Isn’t that what he’s saying?
But we digress. This is about Danes being offending by Sanders using the word “socialist” to describe their form of government. And who can blame them, especially when the free world has had enough of national socialists and Soviet socialists and North Korean socialists and Cuban socialists?
While speaking at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, the center-right Danish Prime Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen said he was aware “that some people in the U.S. associate the Nordic model with some sort of socialism.”
“Therefore,” he said, “I would like to make one thing clear. Denmark is far from a socialist planned economy. Denmark is a market economy.”
Rasmussen acknowledged that “the Nordic model is an expanded welfare state which provides a high level of security to its citizens,” but he also noted that it is “a successful market economy with much freedom to pursue your dreams and live your life as you wish.”
To that we’ll add that Sweden, another of Sanders’ inspirations, has for decades quietly moved away from its cradle-to-grave form of government welfare. And the Swedes are better off for having done so, just as the Danes will continue to be better off as their government overhauls its welfare state.
And don’t forget the immigration policy that is slowly eroding their economy and way of life.
If Sanders is going to continue to use these nations to guide his governing philosophy, then he should base his policy positions on what they really are, not what he thinks they are or wants them to be. These countries have learned a harsh lesson. They don’t deserve to be ‘Berned’ again.
Socialism paves the way with supporters that are clueless
Bernie Sanders is beloved by a lot of people who live in their parents’ basement and work part time to pay the bare minimum on the student loans they collected in pursuit of their Gender Studies degrees. Ostensibly, this is because your typical Millennial ne’er do well is fascinated by the idea of receiving things for free from the government in return for maintaining their citizenship, or because they heard about Bernie Sanders in their subversive knitting group or picked up a campaign flier at Urban Outfitters.
But if it turns out that the “takers” of the world are seeing their own reflection in Bernie’s LensCrafters clearance section specs, it’s because, it turns out, Bernie Sanders is, indeed, one of their own: a man who failed to earn a decent paycheck for actual work until almost his 40th birthday.
Despite a prestigious degree, however, Sanders failed to earn a living, even as an adult. It took him 40 years to collect his first steady paycheck — and it was a government check.
“I never had any money my entire life,” Sanders told Vermont public TV in 1985, after settling into his first real job as mayor of Burlington.
Sanders spent most of his life as an angry radical and agitator who never accomplished much of anything. And yet now he thinks he deserves the power to run your life and your finances — “We will raise taxes;” he confirmed Monday, “yes, we will.”
One of his first jobs was registering people for food stamps, and it was all downhill from there.
Sanders took his first bride to live in a maple sugar shack with a dirt floor, and she soon left him. Penniless, he went on unemployment. Then he had a child out of wedlock.
Desperate, he tried carpentry but could barely sink a nail. “He was a shi**y carpenter,” a friend told Politico Magazine. “His carpentry was not going to support him, and didn’t.”
Then he tried his hand freelancing for leftist rags, writing about “masturbation and rape” and other crudities for $50 a story. He drove around in a rusted-out, Bondo-covered VW bug with no working windshield wipers. Friends said he was “always poor” and his “electricity was turned off a lot.” They described him as a slob who kept a messy apartment — and this is what his friends had to say about him.
Socialism paves the way with talk that’s cheap, but socialism is not
The only thing he was good at was talking … non-stop … about socialism and how the rich were ripping everybody off.
So, basically, Bernie Sanders was that jobless friend who hangs around coffee shops where he cons you into buying his drink, only to talk your ear off about how amazing Che Guevara was, and how he’s living off the grid in an apartment without flooring or heat because he doesn’t trust “The Man” because “The Man” is totally in the pocket of corporate America, even though you’re meeting in a Starbucks and his order was way more complicated than yours.
Every once in a while he mentions running for office, but it’s usually left as a pipe dream because he’s too lazy to ever get around to forming up a campaign, so he hangs out in his basement or yours, writing terrible stories for his “alternative political ‘zine” and scouring thrift stores for drab, vaguely militaristic clothing.
Somehow, this guy managed to make it to Congress, where he earned his first real income, making him, of course, a career politician – if only because being a politician was literally his only career.
And it’s not as though Sanders had the kind of rough upbringing that would lead one to assume his level of success was unprecedented within his family. Although he did grow up poor, as Business Insider notes, he did well enough – and his family did well enough – to send him to the University of Chicago, presumably where he acquired his left wing views, to get a degree he, apparently never used, except as a resume builder when he was angling for his government paycheck forty years later.
But his utter lack of economic education had to come from somewhere. And just when you think it cannot get worse, you have AOC right behind him.
Climate Change – socialism paves the way for control by elites
The topic of Climate Change is being pushed so hard by these globalist socialist nitwits who are backed by none other than good old Nazi Sympathizer George Soros.
In recent news we have watched the new puppet, a Swedish child by the name of Greta whom we have learned is an actor and her and her parents must love to wear Antifa communist domestic terrorist group t-shirts.
And the same people, who say we can’t criticize 16-year old ANTIFA climate activist Greta Thunburg, spent months shamelessly attacking the Covington Catholic High School kids—just because they supported our president. I am all in support for a greener earth I think we can all agree, what I won’t support is globalist pushing false propaganda by using an autistic child with no education on the subject to push it.
Why aren’t these 16 year old climate alarmists preaching to China? (Other than the fact that the Communist State has banned all climate protests.) China is still responsible for: 30% of global emissions – the highest level of CO2 released, and 33% of plastic pollution in the oceans.
Climate change a threat? Socialism paves the way to a greater threat
If climate change were such an existential threat: Bernie Sanders would have solar panels on his 3 houses, the Obamas would sell their Martha’s Vineyard 15 million dollar mansion on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean that’s below sea label, and Mayor Pete would stop flying all over the country in private jets. Democrats would stop eating steaks and hundred dollar cheeseburgers… but don’t hold your breath for it.
Adding more to this hypocrisy is AOC wanting to raise taxes by thousands with her socialist, $93T Green New Deal. Yet she still refuses to pay $1,618.36 in corporate taxes from a failed business she owned. She makes $174,000 in taxpayer-funded salary. So why won’t she pay her “fair share”? You will be amazed how many of these so called socialists do not pay their fair share of taxes but will back the IRS to enforce them on you.
Wake up America! Socialism paves the way to destruction!
Wake the hell up America. Russian collusion—failed Obstruction—failed Tax returns—failed Emoluments—failed Recession hysteria—failed “Trump is a racist”—failed Ukraine—likely another failure Democrats’ new 2020 motto: “When all else fails, impeach” They hate Trump more than they love America.
The world has never been greener. Ignore the climate hysteria! Our world is cleaner than it ever has been. The left is using exaggerated climate rhetoric to scare people. Look at the data. Look at the facts. Free your mind:
DON’T LISTEN TO THE WORDS … WATCH WHAT THEY DO!
